The dive shop was one of the best shops I have dealt with. My son, who is 10 years old, got certified with Discover Scuba and the staff was amazing. They made sure we were both comfortable with him diving before we left on our first dive. Jon Ander Marin and Lara are two of the caring and all around... More

We had a large group from our 43 that went on a catamaran ride to snorkel the reef. It was a party on the boat for sure. The wind was too great and we did not get to Spinnaker, but it was fun even without.

We spent 7 days with Stephan and team diving local reefs, Cenotes and added a snorkeling with Whale Sharks.

This is truly a 5 star operation. Went on a Cozumel dive with them and had Josette as my dive master. She was amazing, really looked after me, always felt safe even at 89ft below. On my second dive outing in Play del Carmen, had Arhund as my dive master. Again the same personal service. The dive masters and staff... More

Very nice diving experience in the cenotes, playa car and Cozumel. Many different types of dives are available and different packages are offered depending on what you'd like to experience. The staff is very friendly, the gear is good. I recommend it!

I had 2 diving days (Cozumel and cenotes) plus the Whale Shark tour day last week, scheduled with The Reef Marina, via Stephan. There was a mix-up in communication, and Stephan made it RIGHT! He even called me at my hotel room to apologize and confirm the coming reservations. Stephan makes a concerted, successful effort at excellent customer service. An... More
